I'm really and truely amazed by this movie. It didn't come short of my expections. It's the kind of genre I love most: dance, gloomy, thriller and a bit of self-discovery.
All of the cast did an awesome job, but i have to say that I'm fascinated by Natalie Portman. She's such a gifted actress. By the way she took two years of ballet lessons, just to be able to take the lead role of the Black Swan. Nevertheless, to me it seemed like she has done nothing else all her life. The only remark I could possibly have is that the sexual scenes are a bit too explicit, they could have been screened a bit more descretely. But by and by it was astonishing and the suspense never subsided. The ending was also just perfect.
We see the stuggles of a girl becoming a woman in an overly demanding environment, and above all she's being pulled to different sides, each demanding of her to do the opposite. She finds it hard to find her true self and please everyone. Her aiming for perfection, ironically lead to her destruction, but there's some sort of pleasure in that too. It's seems to be the only way to perform the "Black Swan" to the extreme acutness.
